Ecclestone: talks under way for Turkish GP deal

Ecclestone: talks under way for Turkish GP deal

Bernie Ecclestone says the Turkish Grand Prix will remain on Formula One's calendar despite a history of poor attendance.
The F1 boss says talks are under way to secure a 10-year contract extension with the Istanbul Park Circuit. The current deal runs out after this year's race.
With few fans in the grandstands for Friday's opening practice, Ecclestone pleaded for patience and insisted ticket sales were up this year.
Ecclestone says the poor attendance is "not good" but "let's wait till Saturday or Sunday. It'll be better than last year."
The Turkish GP has been on the calendar since 2005.
